Emanuel Satie – Addis Ababa EP (Crosstown Rebels)

Berlin-based house and techno wizard Emanuel Satie brings together a plethora of talent for Addis Ababa on Crosstown Rebels. Ninetoes, Mowgan and Matador all join the party to complete this epic EP.
Satie says of the release that it’s “​an homage to worldwide collaboration. While travelling through Ethiopia I recorded traditional musicians, brought the sounds home to Berlin and made electronic tracks out of them with my friends Ninetoes and Mowgan”.
EP opener ​Injera, ​produced with Ninetoes, is a mysterious and bumpy roller. ​Argew Neka, ​made in collaboration with Mowgan, adds tribal song and brings a delicate yet hypnotic groove to the table. Matador’s remix of the latter turns the track completely on its head layering futuristic elements over a harder beat.

Emanuel Satie’s ​career has blown up since he came to our attention in 2016 with his rework of Late Nite Tuff Guy’s remix of ​I Get Deep, w​ hich hit the top spot in the Beatport charts. He’s won the coveted Best Producer award in the DJ Awards and had a string of releases signed to impressive imprints including; Saved Records, Moon Harbour and Knee Deep In Sound. This year saw his track ​Don’t Forget To Go Home ​given the accolade of Essential New Tune from Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong at Miami Music Week.
